Double Vision is the result of a dialogue between the visual arts and poetry. For many years a central aim of Rolf Wojciechowski’s artwork has been to question the realities we create out of our sensory experience through the perceptual process. His images, often created by manipulating photographs and extending them with the help of other materials into three-dimensional objects, invite the viewer to explore different ways of engaging with perceptions, awaken to their ambiguous, ephemeral and often illusionary nature, and maintain an open-minded attitude towards the multi-layered realities we live through. For Double Vision, Rolf used poems by his friend Bhikkhu Abhinando, a Buddhist monk in the Theravada tradition, to provide the themes for his compositions. Most of these poems were written in response to photographic material provided by the artist. Rolf then manipulated his photos in response to the texts, creating the images and objects exhibited alongside the poems.
